CWN Editor's Note: The Church in Italy “will continue to indicate, with severity, if necessary, the common good and not personal interests; the defense of the inviolable rights of the person and the community,” Cardinal Matteo Zuppi, president of the Italian Episcopal Conference, said following the election of Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.

The election of the populist leader is seen as posing new challenges to Pope Francis.

    Cleric or not, one tries to read the political winds...just in case. In any event, it would appear that Italy has made a very good choice. 1) Pope Francis seems to have great difficulty criticizing the countries of the emigrators. 2) St. Thomas Aquinas clearly states the right of a state to control its borders. Buth then, St. Thomas wasn't a jesuit.

    Not be silent? That will be a first. The Church in Italy has been silent ever since the 5 dubia, the secret agreement with China, and the homosexual mischief on Vatican grounds. Now with the Bolsonaro of Italy taking the reins, just as when Trump got elected and pledged to bring security back to the United States, the Church in Italy is sounding off boldly. "Down with the pro-family, prolife, pro-Sacramental Matrimony, anti-pronoun, anti-woke candidate!" Yes indeed, that's some Church in Italy.
